Mata Montessori’s Annual Check-Writing Campaign

November 28 – December 31, 2017

Two years ago, you paid for much-needed improvements in the Mata auditorium, and now we can enjoy performances there so much more! Last year you contributed money to beautify the front entrance of our school and build an awning to keep our kids dry during drop-off and pick-up. BUT, the money raised for that purpose can now be used for another beautification project and for some outdoor equipment for the kids, because the district has included a fancy awning in the plans for our middle school project!

This year we are raising funds for classroom materials for every teacher. 100% of donations received will be used to purchase classroom materials to fully stock each classroom. As you know, the Montessori model is built around high-quality materials for students to use in their studies. Mata’s growth is outpacing the current budget for these materials, and there are always new materials being developed that would benefit our classrooms. Further, some classrooms are currently sharing materials; a successful check-writing campaign will alleviate this need.

Once again, rather than asking our students and families to sell giftware, cookie dough, and the like, as many schools do, Mata Montessori asks you to simply write a check or donate online to support your school.

Our goal is $10,000!

That is a big number, but totally attainable!

How can Mata families help us reach this goal?

  • Remember, no donation is too small — every dollar helps! Can we get 100% participation from Mata families?
  • Let grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, and community members know about our campaign. This makes a great holiday gift for the child who has everything!
  • Many companies match employee donations to charitable organizations like the Mata Montessori PTA. Does your company have a matching gifts program? Any questions or forms can be directed to

As we enter the final weeks of our annual check – writing campaign, we encourage you to share this donation opportunity with family and friends!

To reach our goal of $10,000 for classroom materials, we are asking each Mata family to either GIVE $25 (or more) or GET $225 (or more) in donations from friends, family members, and/or neighbors. Personalize these notes with your student’s name and give them to friends and family to help you “GET” donations for Mata!

¡A medida que ingresamos a las últimas semanas de nuestra campaña anual de verificación de cheques, lo alentamos a que comparta esta oportunidad de donación con familiares y amigos!

Para alcanzar nuestra meta de $10,000 para materiales de la clase, le pedimos a cada familia Mata que dé $25 (o más) o obtenga $ 25 (o más) en donaciones de amigos, familiares y / o vecinos. ¡Personalice estas notas con el nombre de su hijo y entréguelas a amigos y familiares para ayudarlo a “obtener”” donaciones para Mata!

Checks should be made to Mata PTA and delivered directly to the front office. Donations can also be made online at link below. Donations are 100% tax-deductible. The tax ID for Mata PTA is 47-1605637.
